I entered a challenge to scrap 20 layouts using my stash. Here's nos. 3 and 4 -
Journaling: Your first slide down the slippery-dip without my help. You took a big breath, let go and down you went. All by yourself. And of course then you had to do it again and again and again ... And I couldn't help think that it was as much about me letting go as it was about you!
I'm still thinking about running a black marker outline around each of the photos. Or will it ruin it? Indecision. Indecision.
Journaling: You have been slow to talk, but in the last month you've started to get the hang of it. This is what you're saying at 23 months: "Me"; "Detty" = dirty; "Woo woo" = woof woof; "mama"; "Bobber!!" = Bob the Builder and any associated paraphenalia; "Dedda" = daddy; "Mi'" = milk; "Bump" (whenever we go over a bump in the car/pram); "Ledda" = ladder.
I love this photo of my Dad and Jamie. This is how Jamie "talks" when he's explaining stuff. I captured it perfectly. Love it when that happens.
The layout's based on Viv Bonders' sketch on SketchesOz blog. I don't think I've ever used such a big photo on a layout. And I quite like how it's turned out. It's good to challenge yourself to do something different every once in a while :)
Thanks for your comments about my post yesterday. I'm totally over it. But those thoughts had been swimming around in my head and I needed to get them out. Did it sound melodramatic? Maybe. Sorry. Even I have my moments.
I have news. I am on the DT for Designing Memories! Katja puts together the best kits - I was a guest designer for her recently - so I am really looking forward to this. And I've never worked with kits before. Should be good!
Hope your weekend has been great so far.
